HDC mess

i have a HDC i'm working with.
i do WindowFromDC and get a HWND. then after a while
if i do again WindowFromDC on the same HDC. i get a
different HWND then the previous.
in between the two actions i mostly draw and sometime
create a memhdc and release it. i don't have more then 2
HDC at a time so there is probably no error of overwriting
the HDC and besides the only thing that is changed is the HWND

A lot depends on the window class styles and how you got the HDC you are using. If the window you got it from has the CS_CLASSDC style set, and another window of that class did a GetDC() after you first called WindowFromDC(), than the second call you made to WindowFromDC shold return the second window's handle.

If you are not using the CS_CLASSDC flag, than perhaps you could show the code you use to get the HDC, and the code that is seeing this problem. Remember, if you are using GetDC() to get the HDC, the handle should not be used after ReleaseDC() is called.
